National Novel Writing Month

And I continue on typing, typing, typing.

I haven’t found a solid time frame yet to get the writing done, and currently I am spending my time at night typing away for this second book. I would prefer being able to do it during the day, but my days have grown rather compact and busy and it’s becoming a bit arduous to fit the time in for writing. I have time at night at least, so I’m trying to make the most of it.

As it stands, I’m meeting at least the minimum word count. I’m trying to get my totals in before midnight each night, and then adding anything I write after midnight when I’m done. At times it says I’ll finish early, and others it says later, because of the numbers and what it says I’m writing per day. Luckily, I’m getting most of my writing in before midnight so that’s helping a bit…but I’d rather have better consistency like last year.

The story itself is coming along. Since I wrote a few scenes through out the second book for the challenge last year, I have been copying and pasting everything I’m writing into a separate file so that the two bits don’t get mixed up. I could never cheat that way and I’d like to meet the 50,000 words honestly instead of using some from last year. It just wouldn’t sit right with me.

Anyway, I hope everyone else is having a great time in general and with the challenge!


About rachelsparling

I'm a writer working on a manuscript for a novel. I love to write and I've been doing it for 17 years. Through several story ideas I have figured out what works and what doesn't, and I've learned a lot about myself and my writing style. I love to read and escape to many different worlds. I've also learned a lot about good writing and bad writing through both reading a lot and acquiring an education in English literature, and becoming an ESL teacher. I enjoy filming and photographing all sorts of things and putting together short documentaries and videos. I love my camera.
